November 5, 1953: Lucy speaks under the advise of her lawyer's page for this strip.

Quite knowledgeable of the little girl. Most precocious children gags are basically the same kind of joke, so just doing them repeatedly gets old without pushing the envelope. Later on Schulz would mostly drop precocious children strips except for a few long-established examples such as Schroeder at his piano.

  1. As time went on, precociousness wouldn't work so well as a gag, as the characters behaved more like miniature adults.

    Somewhat OT: Last night, Jimmy Kimmel did an awesome mashup of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and Charlie Sheen rants.
